Possibility of Vikings making the Super Bowl presents unique challenges for NFL

Super Bowl Odds: Patriots Favored Heading into Divisional Round 1/7/18

The top team in the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles, host the Atlanta Falcons (11-6).

Throughout the Super Bowl's history, there have been two games that were, in essence, home games.

Your Super Bowl matchup according to this prediction is the Patriots and the Vikings.

There is quite the financial benefit to hosting the Super Bowl and playing in it as well for the Vikings.

It is going to be an interesting playoffs season no matter how this ends up turning out. Julio Jones finally found his way into the end-zone during last week's wild card match-up against the Los Angeles Rams, which should raise his confidence during the rest of the playoffs as he only finished with one touch-down catch this season. Nick Foles had a great game against the Giants the week after he had to step in for the injured Carson Wentz but he was a disaster on Christmas night when the Eagles squeaked by the Raiders. Blake Bortles "led" his team to a victory running for more yards than he passed for.

The Philadelphia Eagles possess the third-longest odds to win Super Bowl LII at 12/1. The Titans don't appear to be almost the threat to New England that the Chiefs would have been. The Patriots will be facing off against the Tennessee Titans, who fought through a tough game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the AFC, with a healthy Pittsburgh Steelers team, Arians expects them to make the big game, but believes Atlanta will be victorious.

No team has ever won the Super Bowl playing in their home stadium, but the Vikings have as good a chance as any team to accomplish that feat.

However, the Steelers are too strong for the Jaguars, and the Patriots seem likely to overwhelm the Titans.

The Falcons have more offensive weapons than the Eagles, and the defending NFC champions will get back to the conference championship game. The Jaguars dominated the first meeting in Week 5, beating the Steelers 30-9 as the defense picked off Ben Roethlisberger five times.

Currently, the New England Patriots have the highest probability to win the Super Bowl at 29 percent, and are AccuScore's pick to win the championship for the second year in a row.

Bing's National Football League predictions use team and player statistics and web activity to build a statistical model that takes into account historical data and real-time information (like injuries, suspensions, and lineup changes). It's certainly possible, but there is still a lot of football to be played.
